    starlight1222:  Is there any part of the work you are doing that could be delegated to a temp?

    Don’t be too quick to answer. After all, if you can learn it on your own, so can someone else.

    Is there any aspect of your work that is clerical that could also be delegated to a temp? formatting? filing? researching?

    You could request that they bring in  a temp until the new person is hired.

    Failing that, you can ask your director/manager to priorize your work and let them know that you will be leaving the office at 6. What’s left undone, will be left undone.

    Remind them that you discussed the importance of work-life balance before you were hired.
